The Corporate Whistleblower Center says on June 13th 2013 the Justice Department announced Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has paid $11.75 million to settle allegations filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico that it violated the False Claims Act by charging inflated prices under grants to train first responder personnel to prevent and respond to terrorism attacks."
The Corporate Whistleblower Center believes many potential whistleblowers see the wrong doing, but never say anything, out of fear of losing their job. In the instance of the contractor providing training services to the federal government it was a manager who blew the whistle, and in this instance the whistleblower will receive over a million dollars in the form of a reward. However, the group believes their is very little oversight of federal grant money, so they consider this a rare example of someone stepping forward, and doing the right thing, and getting rewarded. http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com
